Dash warning light help

Guy need your help. Car has been standing for about 4 days as I have been on the bike. Just gone to go out in it and these warning lights have come up. Any ideas?

scroll through options and when you reach check, press BC and it will show you this sign.
Long press BC and it will give you a code.
Get the code and share it here.

I think it's the pressure sensor that is built into the ABS module that ha gone. Common fault on e90s which has caused BMW to provide a repair kit for around £180. Otherwise it's getting a whole new dsc unit costing LOADS MORE. Hope you come right.

Well wouldnt luck have it, it just got these error codes come up today!!!! I also got CC-ID 50 which is tyre pressure failure. BMW messed up putting all these sensors into one box! All cleared after I restarted the car though but Im sure it will be back. Time for the garage...

It's just one sensor (well, one on each wheel) - the ABS sensor. That controls the ABS, the DSC and the tyre pressure monitoring is derived from it. You've just got a failed wheel sensor and they're about 60 each.

Well, it could be alot of things. Having codes 24 ,35, 50 could mean DSC Hydro unit, wiring, ABS sensor etc.

The tyre pressure error is a giveaway because that needs the ABS wheel sensors and nothing else. I'll put my mortgage on it.

Lol awesome! I dont mind what the problem is as it would all be dealt with under warranty. I would almost prefer the bigger more expensive things to go now while Im still keeping up with a warranty if you know what I mean.

It's a probably ABS/DTC sensor like every one said. I got the same for 4 weeks, but I still don't have time to repair it. My friend obd scanner show rear wheel speed sensor, but I'm not sure because when start car and drive faults disappear for like 200meters and in that time brakes don't work properly, but when faults come back it's start barking normally just abs not working. I took to BMW to check faults but they just reset it and don't tell me what is wrong, just said needs more investigation, that's £200 just to tell what's wrong. I don't have warranty. I hope they will fix that problem for you.

Little update, still waiting for the car back, it will be 2 weeks on Monday since i dropped it off. I am told BMW just have coding left to do. Although i am grateful for the warranty from Vauxhall, i dont think id buy another branded car from them as they have to outsource the repairs all the time lol which just adds time. Not sure how i feel about BMW either, i seem to have lost faith in them, i always thought they were a premium well built car but in 3 and a half years and nearly 50k, my mondeo ST tdci never missed a beat and it only ever needed 1 set of tyres and 1 set of brake pads.

Vauxhall tell me it needed New ABS sensor and the DSC unit had gone (they are yet to confirm if this has been replaced or the BMW repair kit used). This time the misfire / rev jumping was not the coilpacks, i am told the error code was showing a blocked catalytic converter (yet to be updated if they have replaced the cat).

Finally got the BMW back today, new ABS sensor, new DTC pump, Think they said NO2 sensor and something else to do with the cat.
